Moringa helps restore liver enzymes in a damaged liver, according to one study. As mentioned earlier, the liver is responsible for blood detoxification, bile production, fat metabolism and overall nutrient processing. All of this is only possible with its enzymes, which help perform all of these functions.
When a liver is run down or overused, the enzymes can often be depleted, making your liver a whole lot less useful. Moringa helps get those enzymes back up and running.
Moringa is well-established as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. Inflammation is essentially the root of all disease, the liver included. Your liver is responsible for glucose metabolism and bile production, both of which help digestion run properly.
When your diet is filled with lots of sugar and unhealthy fats, the liver goes a bit haywire. It starts releasing glucose back into the blood to make room for the incoming junk and gets taxed during the process. Moringa helps reduce inflammation both in the liver and the body so that the liver can work more efficiently to handle its many tasks.
One of the liver’s main function is to reduce oxidative stress throughout the body. What happens when the liver has its own oxidative stress, though? It stops working properly.
The best way to help support the liver in combating free radicals and reversing oxidative stress is to provide it with a good supply of antioxidants. Moringa is loaded with antioxidants which serve the liver well in its detox process.
The anti-inflammatory properties of moringa help the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis run smoothly, which in turn helps the liver run smoothly. The HPA axis is basically what drives our fight-or-flight stress response. When we stressed, it signals a total body inflammatory response. This stress response does serious damage to the liver and if it carries on for long term can even lead to liver disease.
An unhealthy liver can lead to a host of problems, ranging from nutritive problems to poor psychological health. Moringa has been shown to help support the liver, protect against damage and even repair functioning in damaged livers. Moringa also supports brain health, reduces inflammation throughout the body and detoxifies the body through the digestive system. It makes sense then, why moringa can also help improve liver function too.
